Tampa Bay Buccaneers Predictions & Estimates for This NFL Season


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers must prove themselves this season in order to get some better odds to win the Super Bowl. The team is expected to reach the playoffs without too much hassle, but winning the Super Bowl looks like a very challenging task.

The odds to make it to the playoffs aren’t too bad. The odds of winning the NFC South are not the best, though. Sure, there’s a chance, but there are better-rated teams at the moment. Most betting sites will give you +130 for reaching the playoffs and +320 for winning the NFC South.

Based on recent games, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should hang onto players like Baker Mayfield, Rachaad White, or Mike Evans. The odds to win the Super Bowl this season go up to +8000 on websites like GGBET.

What Happened Last Year?

The last season wasn’t great for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but it wasn’t the worst either. The team went 8-9. In other words, it made it to the playoffs, hence the high possibility of making it up there again. The bad news is it was stopped in the Wild Card round.

Comparing home and away games, it looks like home games were slightly better, with 5-4. As for away games, the team went 3-5.

High pressure doesn’t do the club very well. Last season, the Buccaneers lost every single time they were considered underdogs. Out of three games, they lost all of them. However, when considered favorites, they went 8-6. It’s not the best record, though, but it’s quite balanced.

In the NFC, Tampa Bay went 8-4. As for the NFC South, it was 4-2. In other words, there’s a decent chance to win the NFC South, but there are better-rated teams out there.

When it comes to island games, the last season saw the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take part in five games. The team won three of them and lost two. It’s not an excellent record, but it’s positive.

Out of 10 one-possession games, the team grabbed six wins. Out of five games decided by a field goal (or even less than that), the Buccaneers picked up three wins.

Is It Worth Betting On The Tampa Bay Buccaneers?

Fans can probably recall all the games and know exactly what happened last year. Less avid fans will need a bit of help before making some decisions.

The team has managed to come up with a 4-12-1 ATS record in the previous season, which is worth some attention when betting. At the same time, the team and its opponents hit over six times last year out of 17 occasions.

If you’re looking for more specific insights and numbers, the Buccaneers scored just over 346 yards per game in offense. That’s the 15th position in the NFL. In terms of defense, it was ranked ninth, with 324.3 yards.

From an offensive point of view, the Buccaneers grabbed the 25th position in the NFL. They managed to get just over 18 points per game. It’s definitely not enough to challenge the Super Bowl, but there’s clearly a shot there for the NFC South.


What’s Next For The Buccaneers?

November will be a reasonably balanced month for the Buccaneers, who’ll need to play against the Titans and Colts. However, it’s worth mentioning the fixture against the San Francisco 49ers, who are having a very good season so far.

December will bring in a similar challenge. Out of five games, the Buccaneers are considered favorites in the fixture against the Panthers; that’s it. All the other games are against better-rated teams, but doable. The Falcons or the Saints are doable on a good day.

At the end of the day, it’s still early to tell who’ll get up in the playoffs and what will happen later, but there’s a good chance for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, especially if players come together.

Evans is currently one of the top-rated players, not to mention Mayfield or Chris Godwin. White is in good form, too, yet there’s room for improvement, as well as Lavonte David and Antoine Winfield Jr.


With half the season in, it’s still difficult to get some fare estimates. If you’re into sports betting, the playoff reach should give you a fairly nice win, and it’s totally doable. Winning the Super Bowl may have some excellent odds, but it’s miles away at the moment.

For the fans, the club will go through a slightly unfavorable period now, with two months of intense games in the range. In other words, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren’t considered favorites for too many games, but there’s a decent chance to make a nice impression and actually win.

Only time can tell how far the team will go this season, with half of it under the belt already.
